Access Bank gets approval to acquire Grobank

Herbert Wigwe Access BankAccess Bank Plc has announced that it received approval from South African and Nigerian regulatory authorities to acquire South African-based Grobank Limited.  The bank’s expectation of 30% profit outside its Nigerian base, through a series of acquisitions in East and West Africa, is coming to fruition.






According to the announcement, the approvals constitute a significant milestone in achieving completion of the transaction by the second quarter of 2021. This milestone further solidifies Access Bank Plc’s outside revenue plan especially after the announcement that its Zambian subsidiary (Access Bank Zambia) has finalized the acquisition of Cavmont Bank Limited.

According to the CEO of Access Bank, Mr. Herbert Wigwe, “Today’s announcement represents significant progress in delivering on our strategic intent of becoming Africa’s Gateway to the World in pursuit of our vision to be the World’s Most Respected African Bank.”

Nigeria’s biggest banks such as Access Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc, and Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc are diversifying outside their core operations or expanding across Africa in an attempt to increase revenue after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Grobank in South Africa and Cavmont Bank in Zambia are further indicators of the bank’s presence in the SADC region.

In Nigeria, the bank is looking to transition to a holding financial institution this year which will enable it to open subsidiaries in insurance brokerage and payments.
